"There's a fresh, younger look to my collection this season," said designer Linda Allard before the Ellen Tracy show. "Khaki pants and skirts are shorter, and we've incorporated a lot of color as well. The collection looks great with a sculpted, modern high heel and a simple gold link chain." Other highlights included fire-engine red trenchcoats and shirts; linen knit tops; and jade, lilac and lavender jackets, wraps and tanks. Evening wear revolved around a colorful series of frosted beaded pants, slip dresses and long skirts in grape, cherry, yellow and pink.
